other including hundreds of species of birds.

of the Mara's luxury tented camps, allowing you to experience nights "in
the bush" with all comforts of home.
Overlooking the endless game-filled plains of the Masai-Mara and shaded by dense
forest canopy, this oasis of Hemingway-style tents nestles below the Oloololo
Escarpment. Each luxurious tent affords sweeping views over the greatest grassland
system on earth, still under the guardianship of the pastoral Ilkareskeshe Masai
tride. Exciting game-drives and interpretive bush-walks with resident guides and
naturalists reveal the wonders of the Mara.
After checking in and enjoying
lunch you will have some time to relax and take a dip in the pool before again
meeting up with your private guide and departing on an afternoon game in search
of the big five. The low afternoon light is prefect for photographing the beautiful
rolling plains of the Masai Mara.
